Man Seeks To Stop Ted Nugentís CT Show After His Trayvon Martin Comments
FOX (CT) ^ | 7/18/2013 | Crystal Hall

On a Thursday evening, music is overflowing from Toad’s Place, and come Aug. 6, tunes played by Ted Nugent will echo from the popular New Haven venue.

If Weston, Conn., resident John Finegan has his way, Nugent would be at home singing the blues.

“He is someone who espouses hate and tries to celebrate the differences more so than things that unify and bring us together,” said Finegan.

Ted Nugent is known for his outspoken ways, but a recent editorial on Rare, a conservative website, was too much for John Finegan.

Some of the comments Ted Nugent wrote include: “George Zimmerman is thankfully and rightfully not facing any jail time for legally defending himself, but he is far from a free man.”

And: “While there is little he can do to protect himself from a civil rights charge by our gun-running, pro-New Black Panthers attorney general, Mr. Zimmerman may have some legal room to move regarding a wrongful death lawsuit by Trayvon Martin’s family. George Zimmerman should consider suing Trayvon Martin’s parents.”

He also labeled Trayvon Martin as a “17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.”

On Tuesday Aug. 6, Nugent will play live at Toad’s Place.

“I would like to see Toad’s Place disinvite Mr. Nugent,” said Finegan.

“He’s playing here no matter what happens,” said Toad’s Place owner Brian Phelps in response.

Phelps said Nugent has a right to speak his mind.

“As long as it’s not something totally insane then that’s their business and they should have a right to say it. That is what our country is all about.”

Finegan said he’s hoping people come together for a rally or protest. He hasn’t formed anything, but that could change as August nears and as Ted Nugent makes his way into New Haven.

John has contacted the NAACP, informing them about it.

Fox CT spoke to a representative who said they will look into the matter Friday morning.

I posted about this a few days ago - but this article gives more details and (good) reaction from Toad’s Place owner Brian Phelps.

Finegan has evidently pulled his facebook page since the initial post LOL.

Here is a link to the venue if you live in range and want to support Ted's show.

...more so than things that unify and bring us together,” said Finegan.

Uh...what exactly would those "things" be?

Sounds to me like everything he said was factually true and contained nothing hateful. In fact one could say that misconstruing these factual statements is what is actually hateful.

Seems to have Ted confused with Al Sharpton, a lot of people make that mistake

What exactly is wrong with celebrating our differences? Only minorities can do that?

I am not even a Ted fan and I see this as pure crap

This PC thing the Left has going on, they think it trumps just about everything.

Well, surprise, normal folks are getting a little tired of the antics.

Trayvon was a thug and that is all there is to it. Mr. Finegan just shut up and go away. Uncle Ted was absolutely correct in his comments. G. Zimmerman had to save his life and he did just that. Just like I would have done.

I know who Ted Nugent is but who is this guy???

There are millions of citizens who want Obama to shut the hell up and I don’t see the media giving the media time.

Evidently Mr. Finegan is unfamiliar with the antics of Barak Hussein Ubama.

He thought he safe espousing his hate on faceboob, apparently there were a great deal of people who disagreed with him. Faceboob the place for lonely idiots looking for “friends” and “likes”. Live in reality, just because someone “friends” you doesn’t make it true.

There were probably tens of thousands of T-shirts printed up and given away for free that said “I am Trayvon” by the race hustlers, to be worn in protests and marches.
If I had the bucks I would print tens of millions of T-shirts that said “I am George Zimmerman and I believe in the Second Amendment”. I would charge 25 cents apiece for them and probably be sold out in an hour at any Ted Nugent event.

The truth hurts. Suck it, Finegan!

Those whom leftist extremists can not persuade, they strive to silence.

Just a couple of notes: I worked in a nursing home where there was a young patient in his twenties who was in a comma due to a beating he received. Also, there was a festival in a nearby town, a young man was killed by having a bottle thown at his head.

Were any guns used in these crimes?

How can this possibly be news? Mr. Finegan wets his panties and it is a news story? What next, flatulence reports from Taco Bell?

So this pussy wanting to ban him does the opposite? Lord help us all.
